Rumor has it that comedian Bill Cosby is seeking a plea deal to avoid prison time for his alleged sex crimes.
Cosby, 79, has been accused of drugging and raping more than 50 women, and faces a criminal trial in June on
three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault of a Temple University student. But he is now said to be avoiding a jury trial since a Pennsylvania judge ruled last week that a decade-old testimony Cosby gave during an accuser’s lawsuit may be used in his criminal trial.
The testimony includes damaging admissions of giving young women drugs and alcohol before sex. ‘He and his family, including his wife, Camille, are adamant that Bill won’t be able to convince a jury to let him off,’ a source close the family told the New York Post. ‘Cosby and his family believe he’ll be eligible for a sentence of just probation — and remove the threat of him dying in prison,’ the source told the newspaper.
